"We’re seeing a rise of opportunities and a flood of new talent and entrepreneurs to make waves in the Miami and surrounding markets. We’re excited to bring them together through Voyager HQ .events and see what flourishes from that sense of collaboration.”
NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 14, 2019
Voyager HQ is teaming up with Amadeus to kick off the most recent chapter of its travel innovation event series, .events, in Miami, Florida, which will become its fifth chapter in the United States and sixth chapter globally.
.events is a curated travel technology event series that launched early in 2019 with a mission to create unique networking opportunities for members of the travel technology and innovation community at large. Past .events launches have included Boston, MA, and London, UK, along with Austin, TX, and San Francisco, CA . Monthly events present unique opportunities for founders and enterprise innovators to collaborate through Travel Founders Breakfasts, Travel Startup Happy Hours, Travel Pitch Nights and more.
Voyager HQ was co-founded by Sam S. Jain, the Board Chairman, travel entrepreneur and CEO of Fareportal, the travel technology company powering CheapOair.com and OneTravel.com. Voyager works to connect their community of nearly 2,000 travel entrepreneurs worldwide with resources that include access to mentors, opportunities for corporate partnership and investment, and a tight-knit global community of fellow travel startup founders.
Amadeus has a strong footprint of innovation in the travel space, offering solutions impacting almost every corner of the travel technology ecosystem. The Amadeus for Startups program connects startup founders with industry insights, specialized services, technology solutions and tools, and assistance in going to market. Amadeus’ ongoing partnership with Voyager HQ, as well as major business presence in South Florida, make the collaboration in Miami a natural fit.
“Miami has an incredible tourism industry and is quickly becoming an international hub of innovation,” said John Matson, Managing Director of Voyager HQ. “Given the strategic access point between the U.S. and many emerging South and Latin American companies, we’re seeing a rise of opportunities and a flood of new talent and entrepreneurs to make waves in the Miami and surrounding markets. We’re excited to bring them together through Voyager HQ .events and see what flourishes from that sense of collaboration.”
The new chapter in Miami will launch on December 3rd, 2019, with a Travel Pitch Night. Travel Pitch Night will host over one hundred attendees representing the leading voices and minds in Miami’s travel and technology ecosystem.
The evening pitch event invites travel startup founders to present their early-stage products to the travel and technology community, as well as expert panelists and sponsors from leading travel companies, “unicorn” startups and the venture capital community. Both judges and audience will evaluate each startup and select a winner based on the criteria of business model viability, product/market fit, presentation quality, fundability and sustainability.
Amadeus will continue its sponsorship of the chapter with two additional Miami-based events in early 2020.
In addition to a global reach of partners and resources, Voyager HQ offers its members a coworking and meeting space in Manhattan known as "The Clubhouse." The space hosts networking events, roundtable discussions, and provides a place for the brightest minds in the travel industry to work, connect, and create the future of travel. The company also produces an annual conference, the Travel Disruption Summit, which brings together the top minds in travel technology for a full day of deep-dive conversations, changemaking speakers, and structured industry networking in New York City.
